Small space? Big deal! Grant UK launches the Vortex Pro Combi XS

Leading heating specialist Grant UK has launched* the Vortex Pro Combi XS, the slimmest 26kW oil-fired condensing combi boiler on the market. At only 515mm wide, the XS is designed as a replacement for older inefficient standard efficiency oil-fired combis, which tend to be smaller in physical size.

The Grant Vortex Pro Combi XS has almost identical characteristics on both combustion efficiency and domestic hot water performance as its larger version and utilises all of the existing components so will be immediately familiar to installers of Grant products. To save on space however, the 24 litre expansion vessel, normally located behind the front door of the boiler, is supplied as an ‘externally fitted vessel kit’.

“As a result of feedback from our G-One approved installer network, we developed this more compact Pro Combi XS to ensure our combi boilers can directly replace older inefficient models,” explains Anna Wakefield, Marketing Manager for Grant UK. “Grant have been manufacturing combi boilers for around 17 years and today 1 in every 3 oil boilers we sell is a combi version. The Vortex Pro Combi XS completes our range and meets the requirements of our installer network.”

Whisper quiet when operating, the Vortex Pro Combi XS is extremely energy efficient and user friendly, with neon diagnostic indicators and an ErP energy rating of A for heating and B for hot water.

The highly efficient Vortex range features 46 different model variations, with outputs from 12 to 70kW and around 1 in every 2 boilers installed in the UK is now a Grant Vortex (Source: SBGI).  With SAP2009 efficiencies up to 93.3% gross (97% gross for SAP2005), the Vortex range not only significantly lowers fuel bills but also considerably reduces carbon emissions and lessens the environmental impact of domestic hot water and heating systems.
